Trying to find myself again I volunteered in many places including Claire House, Mencap and providing activities to older adults with dementia - During this time I was training to become a Yoga teacher, which I am now qualified in for mainstream and SEN adults, Autism & ADHD and children's Yoga.
I visited older adults for relaxation and it was proving a success and I realised it was due to what we were doing but also because of the interaction and approach I had. It was making a big difference and making people noticably happier. I was so excited I decided to start offering it to more people. It was my dream come true and I was making a difference using my love of Yoga.
A year on seen me visiting 18 different venues a week, so I turned it into a business. This grew with the support of our fantastic team and the financial support from grants and we moved to a site in Market Street, Birkenhead and had 12 happy months there but quickly outgrew the space, so with further support from The Big Lottery in Jan 2017 we opened up our Activity Centre in Moreton.
If you haven't already visited, please do. We have a dedicated Activity, Yoga and Sensory space and our next project is a sensory garden. We are a user led business and the people that attend shape and run what we do and this enables us to provide people with what they need and enjoy.
